Multiple award-winning British musician, YUNGBLUD, just confirmed that a self-titled third studio album is on the way via a livestream! The full length album, YUNGBLUD, will be following his 2020 album, Weird!, and is set to release on September 2nd.
He made the announcement to fans last night on the livestream where he received a tattoo on his ribcage from tattoo artist, Emily Malice. You can watch that announcement below:
The tattoo he got in the video seems to be the album’s track list which includes the songs “Never Compromise”, “Imperfection is Perfect”, “Embrace the Strange”, “Never Judge”, “Tell the Truth” , “Pink Socks”, “Beer”, and “Move”.
Based on that, his latest singles, “Memories” ft. WILLOW and “The Funeral” will not be on the album.
Via Instagram, YUNGBLUD wrote, “Everything up to this moment has been a complete explosion of uncensored expression, where I just told the truth and sang about what I felt in that exact moment. The difference here is that I have thought and felt this record so deeply. I went to a part of myself that I didn’t know was there. I studied it, I bathed in the emotion, tried to solve the equation and come up with an answer (at least for now) from love to pain, adoration to abandonment, laughter to betrayal. My message is the same, it will always be; I will continue to be nothing but myself and encourage others to do the same. there is simply no other option.”
“I hope it provides my beautiful family who have followed me throughout this journey answers about themselves but also questions and challenges, but most importantly I hope it fills them with love. You have provided me with an antidote for the emptiness and loneliness I’ve felt in the past. You have given me a voice. So here is my story. why did I call it “YUNGBLUD”?”
“Because nothing in my life has ever made more sense.”
At the moment, you can find YUNGBLUD on his LIFE ON MARS European tour, before heading to Australia, New Zealand, and Japan this summer. He will also be returning to North America this Fall for select dates as well as festival appearances at Austin City Limits, Louder Than Life, Riot Fest, and Firefly Music Festival.
